What kind of fly is this guy using? After watching this video I am going to try this if I can ever figure out what they are feeding on!

My guess is it's a Milweed Seed or a Cottonwood seed fly.

I had someone give me one a couple nights ago that he makes using white egg yarn. He says they work great.

That's Carp fly fishing here in Korea. These guys do it mostly in Han River tributaries around Seoul. I'm going out in town today and will stop by the local fly shop and ask. Although they may not be open today because it's salmon season and they're out getting some.
You can also go here and keep looking. carp fly.

Carp will also take your basic olive wooly bugger in a size 10 (and other sizes too). Just make sure it sinks to the bottom, then as the carp approaches, twitch the fly ever so slightly so it kicks up a puff of silt. I've watched several carp fight to make it to a fly doing this. I've caught carp in a variety of sizes, all of which were interested in dark-colored buggers worked on the bottom veeeeeery slowly

I have caught them by throwing streamers in front of a pod of them working along the bottom in shallow water. They suck up the fly but those vacuum cleaner mouths would suck up anything that got in their way so I never considered it fishing. The dry fly thing is another thing altogether!
I have seen them coming to the surface in a lake near here but I have no idea what they are feeding on. Maybe cottonwood seeds, etc.

I have caught them on a Midnight Fire/Captain America bugger, Brown buggers, Pink with grizzly hackle and white tail. Yellow also. EGGS (glow bugs) in red and orange and yellow.
Also on Haresears, and Prince Nymphs.

Hi guys, just got back from a day out in Seoul. Stopped by the River Fly Shop which is ran by a one of the local guides. Described the video and he pulled it up on his computer quickly. He knows the guy in the video and where he was fishing. I asked him what fly he was using and he said, "bread". He went on to say that people feed these carp bread so the carp FF guys use flies that resemble pieces of bread. Makes sense. He quickly obliged me by tying a couple of the "Bread" flies. See below.

Pretty strange but it makes complete sense to tie flies that resemble the bread hatch.

Anyways, it was a great day in Korea and me and my daughter had a great lunch.

Wow! Prior to that, I had always judged the carp to be a filthy "sewer" fish.... That looked like fun. Learn something new every day!!!
